These panoramas are 360º images created by taking several pictures and then stitching the individual images together to make a complete circular image.
To view these images you will need either java enabled on your internet browser or have a special Plug-in installed. At the moment the images are available in the following formats java, Quick Time VR and some trial Javascript images that should not need any special software to view.
Please use the links below the pictures to see the whole picture in immersive imaging format of your choice.

If you are unable to view these pictures interactively on your browser I've displayed cut down images on an extra web page.

These trial images are very much a work in progress and I would appreciate any feedback on how you find these images. I'm aware that there are some concerns over image quality when viewing these pictures with the Quick Time plug-in, especially that older versions of Quick Time don't display the images correctly. If you find a series of horizontal pictures scrolling you'll need to update to a newer version of Quick Time, version 4 or above. Stoney Walk wood is a particular example of QT's inability to encode highly detailed images acceptably.
To find out how these pictures are made please have a look at my technology page about stitched panoramas.
